Ave Maria Virgo Serena

Ave Maria gratia plena dominus tecum, virgo serena.  Ave, coelorum Domina, Maria plena gratia, coelestia, terrestria, mundum replens laetitia.
Ave, cuius nativitas nostra fuit solemnitas, ut lucifer lux oriens verum solem  praeveniens.    
Ave, pia humilitas,  sine viro fecunditas, cuius annuntiatio nostra fuit salvatio.
Ave, vera virginitas, immaculata castitas, cuius purificatio nostra fuit purgatio. Ave, praeclara omnibus angelicis virtutibus, cuius fuit assumptio nostra glorificatio.
O mater Dei, memento mei. Amen


Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee, serene Virgin. Hail, Queen of heaven, Mary full of grace, filling the world with heavenly and earthly joy.
Hail, whose birth brought us joy, as Lucifer, the morning star, went before the true sun.
Hail, pious humility, fruitful without a man, whose Annuciation brought us salvation
 Hail, true virginity, immaculate chastity, whose purification brought our cleansing.
 Hail, glorious one in all angelic virtues, whose Assumption was our glorification.
O Mother of God, remember me. Amen.

Salve Regina

Salve Regina misericordiae, Vita dulcedo et spes nostra salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae.
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes, in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eja ergo advocata nostra, illos tuos  misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Jesum benedictum fructum ventris tui nobis post hoc exsilium
O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria.

Hail, Queen of pity, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
We, exiled children of Eve, cry out to thee.
To thee we sigh, lamenting and weeping in this vale of tears.
Therefore, O our advocate, turn thy merciful eyes upon us;
And after this exile show us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus:

O gracious, O good, O sweet Virgin Mary.


Saule, quid me persequeris? 
Quis es, Domine? 
Ego sum Iesus, quem tu persequeris. Durum est tibi contra stimulum calcitrare. 

Domine, quid me vis facere ?
Surge, et ingredere civitatem, et dicetur tibi quid te oporteat facere.


Saul, why persecutest thou me? 
Who art thou, Lord ? 
I am Jesus whom thou  persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks [goads].
Lord, what will thou have me to do ? 
Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do                       

Ave Maria

Ave Maria,gratia plena, Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.  Sancta Maria, Regina coeli, dulcis et pia,
O Mater Dei ora pro nobis peccatoribus
ut cum electis te videamus.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, queen of heaven, gentle and faithful, O mother of God, pray for our sins, so that we may see thee with the chosen.

Egressus Jesus (Matthew 15:21)

15:21 Egressus Iesus secessit in partes Tyri et Sidonis                                

15:22 et ecce mulier Chananea a finibus illis egressa clamavit dicens ei  
‘miserere mei Domine Fili David filia mea male a daemonio vexatur’

15:23 qui non respondit ei verbum et accedentes discipuli eius rogabant eum     dicentes ‘dimitte eam quia clamat post nos’
15:24 ipse autem respondens ait ‘non sum missus nisi ad oves quae perierunt domus Israel’

15:25 at illa venit et adoravit eum dicens ‘Domine adiuva me’                     

15:26 qui respondens ait ‘non est bonum  sumere panem filiorum et mittere canibus’ 

15:27 at illa dixit ‘etiam Domine nam et  catelli edunt de micis quae cadunt de mensa dominorum suorum’                                

15:28 tunc respondens Iesus ait illi ‘o mulier magna est fides tua, fiat tibi sicut vis’.

21. Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.  

22.  And, behold, a woman of Canaancame out of the same coasts, and cried
unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

23.  But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away for she crieth after us.

24.  But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

25.  Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

26.  But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

27.  And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

28.  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.
